Strawberry Lemonade Baby Blanket ~ by Moda

When I first saw these quilting squares, I just had to buy them! They are so clean and fresh and reminded me of SUMMER! The fabric is by Moda, so you are sure to get the highest quality of fabric! I have used both satin and corduroy to stimulate baby’s senses! Also, baby is sure to love the soft fleece backing and bright colors! You can find this beautiful blanket and other Baby Gifts in my Etsy Shop.

A Day at Denali Park

The girls had to have their picture taken with the huge bear in front of the shops at Denali Park. We stopped there on our way to Anchorage for the tests on the baby. They even found some great treasures!

Another Baby Update!

Hi, we just got home late last night from Anchorage. We had a 3-D ultrasound and saw a specialist. At first when the ultrasound tech was looking for the heart arythmia, he couldn’t find it. But then it started. So he did some measurements and things and then the doctor came it to see us.The doctor looked at the heart some more. And finally told us that we have a HEALTHY baby! And that what is going on is similar to a hic-up in the artery.He called it a premature artery something! But that there is nothing to worry about and that most likely this will go away once the baby is born and takes its first breathe.

On the other had we are having a very big baby. The baby is already measuring 5 lbs 9 oz.That is what Tori weighed at birth! And I have 2 months to go!So, the doctor said the baby may be born closer to August 23rd instead of September 7th! So, we are much releived and God does answer prayers! Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts! Toni, TimTori, Trista, and Baby

Update on the Baby

We recently found out that our unborn baby has a heart arythmia, which means a possible heart defect. We first heard it 2 weeks ago (the day we were leaving for vacation) and my doctor thought it may go away, so she wanted to see me again before sending me to a specialist. I had another appointment with my doctor last Thursday and the baby still has the same problem. So, she is sending me to Anchorage, which is about 6 hours away. I will be having a 3-D ultrasound to get a better look at the heart and seeing a specialist. I am praying that all goes well. And if there is something wrong it will be easy to fix once the baby is born. I am currently 32 weeks, nearing the end and getting anxious to hold my new little baby.

We are heading down Sunday after church and hope the girls do well on the trip. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! Thank you so much for the support from the Etsy community too!
